I received the following three messages today from that asshole Dave Winer. The first must have been sent soon after I posted the previous item.
From: Dave Winer [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Wednesday, October 08, 2003 5:50 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Hey Chris We disagree. No need to go ballistic. Geez.The second is time stamped two hours later.
From: Dave Winer [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Wednesday, October 08, 2003 7:54 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: BTW I've been waiting for an excuse to play the same kind of game with Google that you're playing, it's basically unethical, until someone goes first, and that's you. I know how to do it better than you do, and I have higher page rank, and get this I have a content management system so I can redefine your various names on lots of pages with one script. Having a blast. Thanks for the air cover. Wait till you see what people get when they look up Rageboy! Wow. DaveThe last of them (I can only hope) arrived this evening.
From: Dave Winer [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Wednesday, October 08, 2003 6:50 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: The masses have rallied It looks like everyone has gotten behind your daring campaign to punish me for whatever it is I did. I am humbled by your power and creativity. You win. I will call Laurie Doctor and share her humiliation. I can barely stand to go on with my wretched existence. I have gotten the message. Your base does not belong to me. Please, if you can find it in your heart to ease up on me, I would like to, if it's okay with you, continue living. The pounding of your massive throngs of supporters is more than I can bear.These communications speak for themselves, I think. They make the point better than anything I could add.
